Live Concert Photography: Stonefield at Baby’s All Right 9/29/18
If you’ve been frequenting this site over the past year of its eight-plus year history, you’ll know that I’ve written quite a bit about the Darraweit Guim, Australia-based sibling psych rock quartet Stonefield, and as you may recall, the Australian band comprised of Amy (drums, lead vocals), Hannah (guitar), Sarah (keys) and Holly Findlay (bass) began playing together when they were extremely young — the youngest member was seven while the oldest was 15. And as the story goes, the eldest sister Amy recorded their first song “Foreign Lover” for a school project, and then reportedly entered the song into Triple J’s national, unsigned band competition for youngsters Unearthed High as an afterthought. Much to her and her sisters’ surprise, the band wound up winning the contest, and within an incredibly short period of time after their Unearthed High win, the Findlay sisters had two singles receiving regular airplay on Australian radio and an invitation to play at Glastonbury Festival.
Since their attention-grabbing Unearthed High win, the Australian sibling quartet has been incredibly prolific as they’ve written, recorded and released two EPs, their self-titled full-length debut, their sophomore album As Above So Below and their third album Far From Earth through King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s Flightless Records earlier this year. The Findlay Sisters have recently finished a North American tour, and it included stops at Desert Daze, Toronto’s Night Owl Fest, Mexico City’s Hipnosis Festival and a special NYC area show at Baby’s All Right late last month, specifically to celebrate the release of the “Through the Storm” 7 inch, a single that finds the sibling band cementing their reputation for being one of the world’s hardest, contemporary bands, while pushing their sound in the direction of doom metal in a way that recalls Black Sabbath, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains.
